A California Family Attorney can help with a respectful Domestic Partnership Dissolution.

The California Family Attorneys of Yanez & Associates launch a new video titled “Orange County Domestic Partnership Lawyer”. The video outlines the 13 requirements for dissolving a domestic partnership through the California Secretary of State.

Attorney Bettina Yanez explains that a domestic partnership can either be terminated via the 13 requirements or by filing a petition with the Superior Court and obtaining a judgment if the 13 requirements cannot be met.

These are the 13 requirements that must be met in order to file the notice of Termination with the California Secretary of State:

1. The couple read the brochure and comprehend it. (sos.ca.gov/dpregistry/forms/sf-dp2.pdf)

2. Both parties want to end the domestic partnership.

3. The couple has not been registered as a domestic partnership for more than 5 years.

4. During or before the domestic partnership, NO children were born.

5. NO, children were adopted during the domestic partnership.

6. Neither party is currently pregnant.

7. No part of land or buildings is owned by the couple.

8. Either party is renting any land or buildings (with the exception of the current residence where one or both currently reside, and that lease does not contain a buy option and will terminate within one year of filing for the Notice of Termination of Domestic Partnership form).

9. The community obligations are not more than $6,000. (Not counting automobile loans)

10. The community property is worth less than $38,000. (Not counting loans and automobiles)

11. Neither party has separate property totaling more than $38,000. (Not counting loans and automobiles)

12. The parties have prepared and signed a property agreement before submitting the Notice of Termination of Domestic Partnership form that affirms how the community property possessions and community obligations will be split (OR that maintains that no community property or community debt has been gathered).

13. The parties must be in agreement that they do not desire money or support from the other partner excluding what is contained within the property settlement agreement that splits the community property and community debts.

Once the Notice of Termination has been filed, the Domestic Partnership will automatically terminate in six months if neither party cancels/revokes the termination.
